Quality steel for saw manufacturing
We supply a range of steel grades suitable for making a wide variety of saws. We only stock high quality European steel, fully traceable and as part of the Fernite Group, we are ISO9001 certified.
We can supply steel to manufacture a large batch of saws, or a smaller amount for one-off jobs too.
The choice of steel is dependent upon the saw type and the material it is designed to cut.

Which steel do I need?
Wood cutting handsaws
Traditional wood cutting handsaws are made from high carbon steels, preferably CS80 which combines toughness with flexibility to avoid the risk of the blade breaking
Hacksaws can be made from higher carbon material such as CS95 or CS100 as the blade is usually fixed at both ends, allowing the use of harder material with a longer blade life as there is little risk of breaking due to over-flexing.
Circular saws are made from C75, CS80 or 75Cr1 carbon steels, commonly with a hardness of over 40 HRC.
Bandsaws can be made from CS80, CS95 or CS100 carbon steels.
Metal cutting saws
Saws for cutting metal are usually made from high speed steels, often with tungsten carbide teeth.
BSS supply high speed steels, available on a short lead time.
